Gardenia Plant Leaves Are Not Dark Green

Josette added on May 25, 2011 | Answered

I have two gardenia plants in pots, one is terrific and the other has leaves that are not a dark green. I recently repotted the sickly one and it does have new growth, but the leaves are just not turning green. I did fertilize and noted that some of the new growth ends are slightly brown.
